AMW Reviews: Benefit Speed Brow

Most of the Benefit products I've tried are quite impressive and I don't mind spending a bit more for good, quality products housed in a super cute packaging!  

Today, I will be sharing a brow product review!  Something that's straightforward, a product that can fix and tame the brows without changing the shade!  I remembered using those clear brow gels in the past that tends to stiffen my brows!  

The Benefit Speed Brow is the brow gel I've been using for most of my clients who don't need to change their brow shade!

Benefit says ---
Tint, tame and set brows in record time! This brush-on gel dries to a natural-looking finish for instantly beautiful brows. One natural shade dresses up all brows.

Size: 3.0g Net wt. 0.10oz.

AMW says ---
  • Easy to use brush.
  • Tames the brows without making it stiff.
  • Brows stay put the whole day.
  • Can be used on both men and women.
  • Gives a nice dark brow tint which works for most Asians.
  • Dries immediately upon application.  
  • Does not weigh down my brow hairs.
  • Only 1 shade available.  If you're looking to lighten your brows, this won't be the product for you.
  • Price as compared to the amount of product you get.
Gives your brows a nice shine and make them stay in place for the whole day!


from Benefit
  • Brush onto eyebrows in light, upward strokes. 
  • With the tip of the wand, trace along brow contour to create a smooth line.
from AMW
  • Feel free the use the wand that comes with the packaging if you intend this for personal use.
  • If you prefer to use this professionally, use a disposable spoolie on each client.  Do not double-dip.
  • Just like the way you wiggle your mascara to get into all lashes, do the same for your brow hairs.  
  • Benefit Speed Brow can be used before or after brow pencils or brow powders.
  • If you love your brows but find none of the brow products can tame them, invest on this!  It's worth it!
Will I repurchase?Yes.  I use this on both my male and female clients.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Boys and girls who have full-looking brows and need to tame them without changing much of your brow shade.

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Benefit boutique for Php1,000.00 (approx $24.00) LIKE Benefit Cosmetics Philippines on Facebook to get updated on Sales and events.  At Benefit international website for $16.00 (without tax).


Benefit has always impressed me with their packaging!  
I love reading their product packaging!

Short wand making it easy to work around.

I always start by wiggling the wand on my lashes then gently swipe the brows from inner to outer corner.

Voila!  My brows look clean, tamed and very natural!
Check out the super light brow tint the Benefit Speed Brow gives.

Do you prefer tinted or non-tinted brow gels?
With the way Benefit Speed Brow performs, do you think its worth the purchase or would you go for other inexpensive brands?

As for me, I need tint and color for my brows so I can easily give this a skip.  As a professional makeup artist, I find this my perfect companion in styling and fixing my clients' brows!  I love the fact that I can use this product even on my male clients and they don't feel uncomfortable about it due to its simple, no-frills packaging!

  1. Wow, that's a little bit too natural looking, it looks like you are using clear brow gel. I am not sure if I want to go high end for that kind of effect though...

    1. I know what you mean, that's the downside of this, though it works really well, the price could be a con and you can get the same result from other brands probably. As for me, I haven't tried other brands with similar results, any suggestions?

  2. this looks cool! you don't look like you applied anything but there is something.

  3. Oooh I didnt know Benefit had a brow gel! :)
    Good to know!

    1. Shari, yup! they do! They aren't known as Benefit's star product but I'm glad I found them!

  4. This sounds so great! I use clear mascara for my eye brows when I want them looks natural but absolutely agree with U! They feel and look stiff :P But this way ur eye brows looks amazing!

    1. I know, I dislike the stiff feel clear brow gels give too! What are you using now?

  5. I prefer tinted brow gels because I wanted to lighten my brows...but I think this is a bit pricey for me seeing its performance..I like the Mac Brow set better if I want to splurge a bit but if I'm on a budget I'd choose the one from etude house. :)

    1. Ah now you had me thinking, I haven't tried the MAC Brow Set yet! Will give it a try when I'm done with this, thanks!!!

      Is the Etude house one good?

    2. yup! for me it does a pretty good job in lightening my dark colored brows and its a lot cheaper ;) But you should really give Mac Brow set a try...I'm using Beguile :) i love that product! :D

    3. Ohh so far, I'm quite happy now with my brow gels which I bought from Singapore and also from Japan, will use them and finish them up before I give the brow set a try! Thanks dear!

    4. Wow. Thanks for this review, now i know what's the best brow gel to buy. But does it also have a good effect for thick brows like mine?

  6. wow. Thanks for this review, now i know what's the best brow gel to buy. But does it also have a good effect for thick brows like mine?
